— The first K-9 patrol dog certified under Wake County Sheriff Donnie Harrison has passed away.

The sheriff’s office said Wednesday that Jet died last Saturday. He was 10 years old.

“He never complained about the temperature, what's for lunch or the overtime hours,” his handler, Deputy Tom Hawley, said in a statement. “He just loved being at work by my side, just as much as I enjoyed being by his.”
